I was diagnosed with emphysema a bit more than 16 years ago. In the last year I have started suffering with anxiety & now I am having very bad palpitations. Almost called an ambulance tonight it was so bad. Does anybody else suffer like this & has anybody got any advise to offer. I have been a member of this site for quite a while but am afraid I'm somebody that tends to keep quiet unless I can offer some help or in this case need some. Hope somebody can help. Thanks in advance.
